Google analytics - Segmenting keyword data by type of search done
How do I know which keywords were searched in a "past year" search?

 7:58 am on Apr 28, 2011 (gmt 0)


A while ago Google introduced search options such as:

* Any time
* Latest
* Past 24 hours
* Past week
* Past month
* Past year
* Custom range...

* All results
* Sites with images
* Wonder wheel
* Related searches
* Timeline
* Dictionary
* Reading level
* Social

I would like to know in addition to the regular kewords in the report, what type of search was searched when the visitor found the site.

How can I achieve this? Anyone knows?

Thanks a lot!

In your server logs the referrer field most times contains where the visitor came from.

You could setup a script to parse the referrer and print the results. I rely more on the server logs than in the analytics as I have full control on the server end. Some hosts also have some sort of tracking for visits which effectively parses the logs, you could check that too from your cpanel in case is there.
